Fresh off signing a four-year, $21.3 million extension last summer, Nick Young ended up having a disaster of a season. Young put up 13.4 points on a career-low 36.6 percent shooting in an injury-riddled 42 games, while his relationship with head coach Byron Scott has been rocky at best. He was blasted in the media for his poor work habits and arriving late to games at times.

It comes as little surprise, then, that the Lakers will likely entertain trade offers for Young in the offseason, according to the L.A. Daily News.

Young, for it’s worth, kept his Swag during his exit interview on Wednesday—blaming his poor performance on the rim.

Despite the trade rumors, Swaggy P seemed confident that he’ll be back in the purple and gold next season (perhaps moreso due to his hefty contract and recent poor play).
